the animation art of sailor moon

I’m reading through the Steven Universe artbook and all the refs to magical girl anime make me so happy.

The intro namedrops Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena and Princess Tutu as stuff Rebecca watched that are inspirations. Utena and Sailor Moon are old news but Princess Tutu!!!!! that’s new!!!

Pearl’s concept art sheet has a note that says “maybe open shirtdress or jacket with shorts under it, very Utena?” We ALL CALLED IT. 

Also remember when I wrote that article on magical girl influence in Western animation and dudes argued with me the Crystal Gems didn’t count as magical girls? The original pitch for the series was literally “a doughy, type-A teenage boy becomes an intern to a team of ultra-powerful magical girls”

There is also a note- “REVEAL: HE IS ALSO A MAGICAL GIRL?” which made me cackle.

okay I love concept stuff (u should see me pore over Ace Attorney concept art over and over again) so you will prolly get more of these posts.
